Rick Burtt was hired to officiate my wedding. When I contacted him in the beginning I thought he was very professional and had a lot of suggestions/options on how to personalize our wedding ceremony. He let us know multiple times that he suggested against the candle ceremony because we would be outside. We appreciated the feedback and understood that the candles might blow out in the wind but we really wanted to use the candles anyways. The rehearsal was going to be a week before the wedding but due to scheduling conflicts we moved it to the night before the wedding. Everything at the rehearsal seemed to be ok. The day of the wedding Rick Burtt did not show up. He did not answer his phone right away, it took a lot of calls and a lot of time passed. Mr. Burtt informed my now husband that he would not be available until 5pm, our wedding was to be held at 230pm. We had to find another officiant at short notice with all of our guest already waiting and I had to get the vendors to stay longer and compensate for the extra/extended times. Later Mr. Burtt sent me an email apologizing for the miscommunication and blamed the confusion on me, the bride, not saying anything about the sun being in my eyes at the time of my ceremony. I have gone through all of my emails and did find a specific time and date the wedding was to take place and it has always been the same for each vendor. I followed up with everyone multiple times and everyone else was where they needed to be, when they needed to be there.
My suggestion for the future is that you do not double book yourself so that another couple doesn't panic and have to scramble their wedding.

Billerica Massachusetts Justice of the Peace Rick Burtt responded with the following comments:

I sent this response this Bride and Groom : Michelle and Kerry,
I am sorry for the misunderstanding with your ceremony time.
The time I understood for the ceremony was 5pm. I had written down 5pm when we had our 1st meeting and I have gone over all emails since then and there was no mention of a 2:30pm ceremony. The only mention is a question on getting a 5pm for the rehearsal. Last night at the rehearsal (5pm) we discussed the sunlight at 5pm Michelle saying she did not think about it being in her eyes, we moved inside the gazebo to make sure the sunlight was not in her eyes during the ceremony at 5pm? Again I am very sorry (this has never happened to me in the past) I wish you both the best.
Rick
I offered to still come at 5pm as planned and was told at 2:55 that "we have gotten somebody else"
I am sorry for the miscommunication and change of plans.

It was an honor and a privilege to have Rick Burtt officiate over our elopement. Beyond professional, Rick demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond. From first handshake to helping us with the ideal spot, Rick was an outstanding gentleman. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Rick Burtt was a great help in planning our wedding. We were working with a very short timeline, so promptness and flexibility were very important to us. Rick accommodated us in everything we needed, from helping us plan out the ceremony to arranging the music, and even helping us add elements that made it more special than I had originally imagined. He suggested that we do a wine box ceremony, which is just each of us writing a letter and putting it in a box with a bottle of wine. Then we would open the box on our 5 year anniversary and read the letters while drinking the wine. It really added that little uniqueness to our wedding that made it so much better than a shotgun wedding. Plus, he was very patient with us, even on the day of, when we were a bit nervous and panicked about last minute details.

Rick is so professional and such a gentlemen. He is extremely easy to work with and makes things go so smoothly. My husband and I had a low key, casual wedding and some of our friends are jokesters ... Rick is so gracious and classy but just went with the flow when our guests goofed off. It was all fun-loving and everyone said it was the best time they have ever had at a wedding! I highly recommend Rick!

Rick was fantastic! In our wedding we had a very large wedding party. A bunch of them (the boys) tend to get a little distracted and unruly when they are together. Rick got everyone engaged, made the expectations clear, and they followed suit. That was one of the major things that stood out to me, because during rehearsal, I'm all nervous and have a million things on my mind. Rick took that stress off of our shoulders and made sure everyone would be where they are supposed to be. His ideas for the ceremonies were awesome. SOme were traditional, and others i have never heard of! But all were so creative! He is worth the money. He traveled quite a long way to our venue, always on time, very respectful to my family members and answered all questions and addressed all concerns. I would recommend Rick to anyone!
